Donald Trump Denies Matt Gaetz Asked Him for a Preemptive Pardon


Former President Donald Trump denied Wednesday that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) ever asked him for a preemptive presidential pardon.

“Congressman Matt Gaetz has never asked me for a pardon,” Trump said in a statement to reporters. “It must also be remembered that he has totally denied the accusations against him.”

The New York Times reported Wednesday that Gaetz privately asked the White House for “blanket pre-emptive pardons” for himself and some of his congressional allies, citing “four people briefed on the exchanges about his pardon request and other Trump confidants” as sources for the article.

A spokesman for Gaetz denied that he privately asked for a pardon, but pointed to public interviews with the congressman who encouraged Trump to issue broad pardons for his allies in Congress to block the “bloodlust” investigations by the left.
